Platform Steam Deck, macOS

This is the page for my second Elder Scrolls Online playthrough, for the character Marwyth of the Dark Elves.

I began this playthrough in May 2023. As with my Gyllerah playthrough, Marwyth’s run will be primarily on the Steam Deck, but with action on the Mac if I want to run group activities with my Guild, or if I just feel like being on the Mac instead.

Marwyth is not my first Dunmer character, and I was originally going to name her Merawen after the Dunmer I ran in Skyrim. However, somebody had taken that name on ESO already. So I went to Marwyth instead–which means this character is actually named after the same character in my Rebels of Adalonia books that Merawen was named after, since Merawen was that character’s original name, and she was called Marwyth later.

My main goal with this character is to be more of a stealth archer, an archetype I love to play in Skyrim, and I want to get better at the bow in ESO. So I’m intending the bow to be Marwyth’s primary weapon. And I want to learn about running the Nightblade class in general. Whether she winds up being more of a magblade or a stamblade, I don’t know yet. We’ll find out.

I expect to be doing a lot more sneak with her. I don’t actually own the Thieves Guild or Dark Brotherhood DLCs yet, so I can’t commit to having her join either of those groups. But I may consider those as future options for her if I’m able to get the DLCs.

Marwyth’s Backstory

TBD. She may also already have a history of being at odds with the law in Morrowind, and possibly a bit of a heretic in regards to worship of the Tribunal.
